When you think of demons, what do you think of? Twisted creatures from hell complete with scales, horns and a pitchfork? Embodiments of evil that cannot be trusted and seek to control your soul? Maybe you even buy into the more modern definition describing them as denizens of another dimension, neither good nor evil, just different. Doesn't their defnition depend upon who is telling the story?
Some religious zealots even consider queer folk to be demonic
in their own right - followers of Satan, denizens of hell, destroying
the moral fabric of society. Then again, these people aren't
happy unless they can oppress someone, feeling better about
themselves by vilifying a less powerful group. Evil, they state,
is something absolute, designed by a higher power. And demons
are those that embrace this evil. But what they call evil has
never been constant, nor is it absolute. As for queers, we just
want to live our own lives, and be treated as equals, not beasts.
How evil is that?
This section of QueerHorror
deals with demons. Whether they be followers of Lucifer,
or cute little snakey creatures from a parallel universe, they're
here, they're queer, and they're ready to stand up and be counted.
Sometimes evil, sometimes misunderstood, always a part of our
culture. Here there be demons.
This portion of QueerHorror
is extremely small. A complete, albeit very short, list
of books and movies
with queer demon content is provided. But, more is always
desired. If you know of any other books, movies, tv shows
or anything else that should be included, please let
